on assurances they got from me. >> during the interview, the president defended hhs secretary kathleen sebelius. >> i think kathleen sebelius, under difficult circumstances over the last four and a half years has done a great job in setting up the insurance markets so there is a good product out there for people to get. kathleen sebelius doesn't write code. she wasn't the i.t. person. the buck stops with me. i'm the president. this is my team. if it's not working, it's my job to get it fixed. >> julianna, what does the white house think of the apology? what were they trying to do here? >> the fact you heard sorry come out of the president's mouth recognizes, means they recognize they have a problem on their hands. between the website, the controversy over people's coverage getting canceled, it's opened the door. it's to legitimize having the credibility. >> they consider it a big deal. we heard people close to them for a long time saying they feel like if they ever admit the mistake, then the door. >> it's a big deal they said sorry. itis what the sorry is about. the sorry is not for what he sa
executives and hhs secretary kathleen sebelius on april 12th of this year, just days after both became aware of the mckenzie findings. that's one insz nt. president obama told americans they can keep their doctors and their insuran if they liked them. at least 37 times, during. the president's campaign. we now know those statements are untrue. if obama care could have passed without those president untruths and whether he would have been re-elected. the president invoked executive privilege that would document eric holder's role in operation fast and furious. president obama said that he didn't know of irs' targeting of republicans. nsa spying of world leaders and the department of justice snooping on reporters. the obama administration lied to the american peoplehen they claimed repeatedly that a juvenile veo sparked an uprising that led to the death of four americans in benghazi and the president obama applied untruths to the general assembly, 14 days a of he claimed he knew that benghazi was a terrorist attack. >> there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. there are no words tha

coverage. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius is expected to make that announcement this morning opinion the new rules extend benefits to rehab and outpatient services. insurers have raised concerns that mental health treatments are sometimes lengthy. the administration said the rules won't significantly increase premiums, because only a small percentage of patients require higher levels of care. we spoke recently to patrick kennedy about his personal struggles with mental health. the former senator has now become the spokesperson for expanded coverage. >> when you consider how important it is that your brain functions well for the rest of your body to function well, why wouldn't we make the necessary investments to help your brain function better? >> advocates say this is a victory for people who have mental health issues who for years have said it isn't equal to other coverage. >> the president has apologized to americans who are losing their current health insurance plans. while he was touting his health care plan he said no one would have to give up their policie

kathleen sebelius testifying before the senate finance committee. i want to play you a bit of her testimony right now. [video clip] >> the enrollment numbers, which we will release next week, which will be the first month of enrollments, are likely to be quite low given the struggles that people have had getting access to the site and getting information. >> do you expect the numbers to be very high during the month of november and december? >> well, i am hoping that with the site improvements we will see more robust numbers, but fullythe site is improved and we have opened up the doors wide to a lot of people, we are going to have i think a struggle getting significant numbers to sign up. >> sure. talkingthleen sebelius about the expectations game. what else was your take away from her testimony this past week? guest: the administration is that for a long time they have always expected that the majority of people would be more motivated by a deadline to sign up so people would not necessarily come in in october. a vet to revive a campaign more dramatically -- they've had to revise that cam
the site crashed two times this week. kathleen sebelius said the website has cost $174 million so far and more probably to fix it. >>> starting today $5 billion is cut from the food stamp program. that means less grocery money for millions. the cuts will vary by family but this is typically a family of four getting 668 a month would lose about $36. food stamp benefits were raised during the recession and temporary increase to the program and that expires today. in 2007, 26 million people were using snap as they call it, supplemental food benefits and compared that to almost 48 million now. 15% of the american population is using government assistance to help feed their family. $36 a month is going to hurt some people. people who work for food banks are upset about these cuts. others say this was meant to be a temporary measure and that temporary measure is now over. you'll hear more about that. >>> are you -- when you fly, are you going to be irritating with your devices now you're able to use them or a good citizen? >> i'm always a good citizen. >> i'm so glad nobody can chat on thei

-span. >> while we work to fix the issue we'll show you testimony with kathleen sebelius. >> mr. chairman, i'm relying on the advice of not only the inside team and contractors but a lot of the outside experts who have come in to take a look at the system and they did a number of things along the way. they did a series of diagnostics, looked at the entire system and determined at the out set that healthcare.gov is fixable, that it isn't fatally flawed which was the initial report out of many people. secondly we have asked that question a number of times, would it be helpful to take the whole system down and make mixes along the way? we've been adviced that actually doesn't help. that it is better to do routine upgrades, some of which are hot patches that can be done while the system is fully run rninging, others are better to be done in the maintenance period between 1:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. when the user experience is pretty low and we take the system down for periods of time. but given the fact that the various fixes, particularly the function nalt fixes, the codes have to be written in bat
neat to look at. >> aides to hhs secretary kathleen sebelius confirmed on wednesday that the web site won't be ready to handle small businesses' purchases of health insurance for their employees until this time next year, prompting this response from republican national committee chairman. with each passing day, it's clear how much worse obamacare is than a web site full of glitches. yet again the administration has made a wholesale change to their signature piece of legislation because of the disastrous impact it is having on americans. it's time we stop delays pieces of obamacare, he concluded, and scrap it and start over with common sense reforms. uninsured individuals who want to avoid paying that fine must purchase their health coverage by march 31. back to you in new york. >> thank you, james rosen, from d.c. >> thanks. >>> as the deadline approaches, we've seen a couple of closed door meetings taking place with democrats who are concerned certainly about their reelection and want to go find out from the administration what exact israeli going to happen. we know vice president b
